    I haven’t been this happy in well over a year. It’s been an awful few months and this is going to help a lot. I can’t wait. I have to wait till sometime Friday to get mine though, hopefully early afternoon. First thing I’m doing is following Major Nelson on Xbox Live.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      sorry to hear you been having troubles. hope everything starts going well.

    • Nick Peck

      Yah I hear ya, life can be a mess at times lol…. Good luck and enjoy!

  • slasaru

    I ordered it from another country. So have to wait for one or two months (((
    Then i have to migrate to another account, may be UK. Hope i will be able to buy games from the UK store…

    • HGamer

      Rumor says (according to a so-called “leaked document” on the web) console’s locale setting will determine which marketplace you go to, and you can freely change your console’s locale anytime. If that’s true, you don’t need to change your account.

      Still, you will need a valid payment method for the marketplace you choose.

      • Ivanx360xpira

        It´s something like the way Nokia phones work (i personally love it)…if it is true, then it´ll be amazing…but I take that with a grain of salt!

      • roozbeh, again

        Brilliant, hopefully it will fix all the region lock bull that is on the Xbox 360

        Oh shut up kid and qut sucking Microsoft’s p3nis.

        I prefer the Xbox 360 over all consoles so quit thinking that just because I find this sad, I’m a Sony fanboy. I’m not a Sony fan nor a Microsoft fan.

  • evilfangs .

    So excited, I can’t wait.

  • Steve Of The O

    Good Luck! I’m waiting on the UK 29th launch for a PS4 but hoping for a smooth Xbox One launch. Hope you all enjoy!

  • HGamer

    I want to join. But X1 is not launching in my region yet……. :(

    Hope MS can announce the launch date of Asia ASAP.

  • IntenSePinda

    Still can’t believe u guys skipped The Netherlands. Sigh.

    • Steve Of The O

      *Cough* Sony didn’t *cough* lol

  • fastharryDOTcom

    paid off…have first order at my local gamestop…Traded in my 360 and have been gameless for 5 days….Gonna pick up tonight at Midnite launch and set it up tomorrow…..

    • Nick Peck

      Enjoy it!! I’m nervous that my online order will get messed up and mine won’t show up tomorrow lol.

    • evilfangs .

      Paid off my console and games today too, £551 :P

      Just waiting now to pick it up at midnight.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    and stay there for me to pick up. i don’t want some ups guy pretending to be Jordan with my packages.

    • Nick Peck

      Yah no kidding, that always worries me when I’m awaiting fragile packages lol.

      • Jason

        Thankfully, my UPS carriers come late in the afternoon after I get home from work. I am going to sit outside and wait for them because they no longer ring doorbells or knock anymore. Cannot wait. Hopefully, Amazon packages the XB1 better than they did with my PS4.

    • baconcheeswhiz89

      lol that was funny

    • Dylan

      Ever seen the beginning of Ace Ventura where he delivers a package?

  • Nate Welles

    Lol Ryse reviews are awful, no surprise there (but you fanboys will say “oh but im gonna enjoy it anyway” which is the same argument PS4 users could use for the low scoring games, but you guys are ignorant and cant accept that), lococycle has horrible reviews, so does Crimson Dragon and most of the games have microtransactions. Lol nice.

    For those of you who are buying the console not just because it has *Microsoft* on the packaging, enjoy your launch and hope everything runs smoother than PS4′s.

    • A. J.

      Let’s compare exclusives.

      Xbox AAA ($60) game metacritic scores:
      Forza 5 – 8.2
      Dead Rising 3 – 7.8
      Ryse – 6.1

      PS4 AAA ($60) game metacritic scores:
      Killzone – 7.3
      Knack – 5.6

      In addition, Killzone is overshadowed by COD: Ghosts (7.8) and Battlefield 4 (8.7). Forza has some competition with Need for Speed, but they look to be on par.

      So if this trend continues, PS4 is better for low end games (>$25) and the X1 is better for AAA ($60) games.

      • Steve Of The O

        Critically though it seems that cross platform games will run better on PS4. A boast the 360 used to have over PS3. Time will tell I suppose though, as a launch can’t be considered a trend really

    • fastharryDOTcom

      I think on a first wave game…I am glad to see words like “stunning visage” in a review…..The gameplay will be here in 6 months…

    • Ivanx360xpira

      whats your point?we all know Ryse wouldn´t get high scores, since it´s reveal critics were bashing the game…I think you’re smoking to much “knack”!

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        i have already sold knack. that game was garbage to me but my friend likes it. its all relative i guess.

    • Nathanzz

      The Xbox One and PS4 are both incomplete systems waiting for updates to fulfill their potential. Their launch games are abbreviated or compromised titles rushed to meet a deadline. The best games available on next-gen can be played today on current gen with a slight decrease in fidelity, but smoother framerates and more online competition. Getting one of these systems at launch is to pay the most for the least complete experience, but that’s the downside of being an early adopter. What else are you going to do? Buy a Wii U?

    • Jason

      I’m not quite sure you have a grasp on what “awful” means…
      I have watched IGN’s review of Ryse and they gave it a 6.8 out of 10. That isn’t awful, that is above average. The PS4 games weren’t low scores either. They were average and above average. As a gamer I would love every game to be 10/10 but this whole notion that an average game is a bad game is nothing more than the result of this whole my system and its games are better than your system and its games. Average games are still fun and interesting no matter which system they are for.

    • roozbeh, again

      Just stop. Those that were ignorant will remain so. Nothing will change the mind of a mindless fanboy.

    • Achtlos

      Ryse is fun… the install time for these games is looong.

  • Nathanzz

    We need a way to schedule midnight deliveries from UPS.

  • Fearhimself

    I wish this was a joke or spam. But this is my life.

    I’ve been fighting a Meningioma, a brain tumor for the past 3years now. Been in a wheelchair since 2010.

    I had surgery in 2010, but part of the tumor is inoperable. I’ve had radiation to shrink it. It’s still there. I’ve been getting physically weaker over the years. I’ve had about 7 surgeries now. My tumor lead me to get Meningitis, which lead into Syringomyelia. All in three Years!

    Throughout my sickness, besides my beautiful fiancée. My art and xbox was what kept my mind off of the things going on.

    I lost my ability to play video games about 1.5 years ago. And in May, I lost my ability to use my laptop to draw. The 2 things I grew up doing, and was my “therapy” I cannot do anymore.

    Though I can’t play, I continue to follow the gaming community. I am both sadden and ecstatic about the Xbox 1 launch. Sad, because I can’t play video games, and probably won’t be gaming for sometime… But, happy to see the new console! And to know Killer Instinct is back!!

    To everyone getting an Xbox 1 on launch or later. Enjoy yourselves, have fun. Get an achievement for me.

    To Microsoft and company. Congrats and good luck on November 22nd. Thank you for the good times. Hope to see you soon. GamerTag- Fear Himself

    • Jeremy Mattsen

      Who would down vote this? In my mind I am trying to figure out how to get him an Xbox One and others down vote him? Sad time we live in.

      • ZeRoLiMiT

        I think because a lot of people think its fake.

        • Jeremy Mattsen

          Maybe… I suppose I like to give the benefit of the doubt.

          • Fearhimself

            Well guess what. It’s the truth. I know it sounds far fetched, but this is my life. I wish it were a scam. I just want to somehow help others appreciate small things.

          • Anonymous

            There’s a very high chance he’s faking it because his parents aren’t buying him the console.

          • Fearhimself

            I don’t fault you for not believing me, but to stoop as low as you did, too infers that I would do this because my parents would buy me a console? I’m 31 years old. I’d rather feel like an idiot to believe in something heartfelt and it turned out to be a scam. Then be abrasive towards someone, and it turns out to be the truth.

            You do not have to believe my words. But please, do not add negative opinions.

      • Timothy Hames

        Some people just vote down things without even reading them or just to get a reaction like the one you just had.

        Pay it no attention

    • http://www.mainstreetchatham.com/ JimmyFal

      Some folks think that skydiving, or seeing the world and all that other kind of stuff is what needs to be experienced in life. But after having done quite a bit myself, it is the simple things that matter the most. Great luck to you in your challenge.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      made me tear up. sorry to hear that man. I don’t now if you believe in God but I do and so the best thing I can do it pray for you. sounds cliché but that is all I can do. never give up. awesome gamer tag too.

      • Fearhimself

        Thank you. Any help is appreciated.

  • xbox_gamer

    Cool. Instagram and candy crush saga on windows phones

  • Bv8360

    Shame the launch failed in Australia, unable to download the update for over two hours now. Not bad, a $600 paperweight. Disappointed

    • Timothy Shilleto

      i just download it fine

      • Bv8360

        POS!

    • Achtlos

      Any luck now? I had no problems but it did have a dubious pause for 2 mins on the green ‘xbox one’ logo screen after downloading the update. Day one is hours and hours of installs. NO apps are installed out of the box. Apps don’t download while games are ripping… so lots of waiting

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      watch out. if you say anything bad about the x1 the trolls will eat you for lunch.

  • Mik3t

    i cant seem to get an answer from anyone is the london event live streamed (its looks spectacular but i am 3 hours away)?

  • Timothy Shilleto

    i got it just fine

    • Bv8360

      Trying again now.

      • Bv8360

        Still getting the “There was a problem with the update”, several other people locally are having the same problem – We’ve had this message for over 2hrs now, and our network connections are fine?!

        • Timothy Shilleto

          im in QLD i got it fine few hours ago just downloading 6gb forza patch now

  • Gazza!!!

    Im picking mine up at midnight but judging by all the updates and their sizes I will probably fall asleep in the early hours before its ready to play.

    • Nick Peck

      You can start playing while downloading. I’m sure the bigger games will require a certain % to be dl’d first but you can start playing them. I have over 200gb to download tomorrow (dl’ding my movies which I will then transfer to my external once they allow it). enjoy guys, the day has finally come.

      • Gazza!!!

        6 hours 30 mins for me. Lets just hope the mandatory system update is good to go.

  • Jason

    What is up with the green boxes?

  • Jason

    This stuff needs to be announced more than finding it randomly buried in an article on headsets.
    “(You are going to have to) opt in to beta surround sound support via the Xbox One’s TV Settings menu. Otherwise, HDMI-IN audio is converted to stereo output by default.”
    At least at launch because of some instability issues with different set top boxes.

  • Voreo Sabrae

    Heres to it going better than the PS4 launch *cheers*

    • Anonymous

      Hope you’re aware that it lacks surround sound on Launch.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        really, no 5.1 decoding on xbox one !? i heard the audio processor was really good in the xbox one. even day-one patch ?

        • Nick Peck

          It’s not there for optical / headphones at the moment but will be patched. If you are using HDMI you have nothing to worry about. It’s a very limited issue, odd, but limited.

          The system supports pretty much every standard and then some.

          • Dylan

            So how are they going to support surround sound headphones in the future? I’m wondering how it works.

            The way it has always worked is that the audio was separated into 2 different channels, chat and game. So headphones needed to be plugged into 2 different places. I was originally concerned that there was no audio component in either console (hdmi only)

            The PS4 did away with that, and streams all audio into the controller, so there only needs to be one plug in now. Straight into the controller for chat and game audio. Smart.
            Does the Xbox One do the same? Or is it different?

            I’d like to know because I would like to get headphones compatible for both consoles, as last gen I used the same X31′s for my 360, PS3, and PC

          • beardyman3218

            You can use an adapter for the chat which plugs into the pad. If you are using stereo “surround” headphones you just plug the 3.5mm jack into your tv’s headphone socket(the tv would grab the sound from hdmi) and if you use 5.1 headphones using a toslink (SPDIF) connector you for the time being can get uncompressed stereo and an update is coming later for dolby 5.1 sound, if your headphones supports 5.1 dts they can use that from day one, dolby are still finalising there software.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            I have never been a headphone fan as far as video games are concerned. with that said, I am wondering does it actually make games better or are they used for online games and such?

          • Dylan

            Oh man, it is so great. I was like you for a long while, “Ehh those are for those COD kids”, I used to think.

            Then I got them on sale. It is such a huge difference, I’d compare it to playing HD for the first time. Surround sound is marvelous and adds so much to games.
            My first game with them was Dead Space, made it so much more scarier (you can hear little whispers from different directions) and intense.

            They really do make games better if all you use is your tv speakers.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            ok i will try a pair out. worst case i just don’t like them and send it back. thx for the help.

          • Dylan

            I would say just try them at a store (there are some on display at the big box stores) or especially a friends house.

            But for next gen, definitely wait. Because they are grasping new technologies right now, the audio output is different now, so I would wait until they’ve had a chance to utilize it

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            headphone are supperior to spot directionnal sound such as where the fired round are coming from and on which side those footstep are coming from.

            It is often also allowing you to perceive more detailed in the sound that you would normally loose

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            surround sound on headphone is seriously a gimmick

          • Dylan

            It seriously isn’t. As much a gimmick as 1080p vs 480p

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            maybe i’m confused about the benefit of it. At first, sourround headphone when they first came out, was trying to give the illusion you were receiving sound from behind by manually delaying sound. In terms of music it doesn’t make sens, in terms of gaming, well at that time, the output of console was stereo anyway. I saw one of your comment describing it like it was really a plus so i’m curious about today’s tech. can you tell me which one you are using ?

          • Dylan

            I use the X31 Turtle Beaches. It is outdated, and was middle of the line at the time. I wouldn’t recommend it now, simply because it is outdated. The gimmicks are the little features like “bass boost” or “sound widener”.
            The technology gets increasingly better with each year

            The true tech is the 7.1 headphones, however most games don’t even support that kind of surround sound.
            I definitely encourage you to try one out at a store, or especially a friends house. I was extremely disinterested in them until I actually tried one at a friends house.

            I can’t use my TV audio or normal headphones anymore for gaming, just like playing in standard definition is tough for me now

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            i might check it. I have a crazy surround system i use very nice focal speaker and they are hard to beat at that price range and also got a pair of turtle beach. the Xl1 or something like that. i play often with the hearphone because i play late when the kid is sleeping and because of the improved mic over the original x360 bad headset. thanks for the info.

          • Dylan

            Oh well the surround system is awesome. With headphones I’d say it wouldn’t be as impactful as that kind of high end system, but if you’re looking for something good to chat with and good for sound, that’s the way to go.
            The X11′s yes, I’ve tried those. Too many wires for me!

            But if you have a system in place already, you might not need them.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            lol yeah too many wired i agree. usb for amplifier, mic cord and headphone cord and the dob and baby in the middle !!! again i’m scared a bit but the wireless sound quality as it use to be very bad.

      • EldritchWarlord

        No surround sound for HDMI pass-through.
        The system’s own sound output can be in surround sound.

        • beardyman3218

          UPDATE: Xbox One does actually include surround sound support for devices connected via HDMI In, Xbox corporate vice president Marc Whitten has clarified, despite Microsoft’s support site stating otherwise.

          Source videogamer dot com

      • beardyman3218

        WOW! You are ill informed it doesnt lack surround sound at all. It supports uncompressed pcm in stereo, 5.1 and 7.1. DTS 5.1 is supported in games as well, dolby digital 5.1 is also coming just after launch and wasnt ready because dolby were finalising the software.

      • Jason

        It doesn’t lack it, but you do have to turn it on after the initial setup.

      • Nick Peck

        If you are using HDMI you are fine, it’s just an odd optical / headset thing that will be fixed shortly. But nice try though…. :|

    Too bad I can’t watch the XBOX ONE show tonight. I’m gonna be watching Thursday Night Football, when my Saints play the Falcons. Why did the Saints have to play tonight? I wish they were playing Sunday :(

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      lol a true fan !

    • Jason

      The game should be long over by 11. I like it this way because at least on Sunday I can play XB1 and snap the football games. I hope losing Greer doesn’t put too much pressure on the secondary. They need to beat the failclowns and stay as far ahead of the Panthers as they can.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      you would rather watch your team lose then watch the x1 show? sounds like torture.

      • Dylan

        Any team that actually loses to the Falcons is a sad sight indeed.

        They haven’t been the same since the 49er’s beat them down with that great comeback in the championship game last year.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          lol hey, once gamblers get in on it anything can happen is all i’m sayin.

    The Xbox interface is not simpler by any stretch. It has been
    criticized as being cumbersome and overwhelming. I’m sure the ads don’t
    help. Also, several early reviews are stating the voice commands are
    clumsy and simply do not work all the time.

    • WARLORD

      Well at lest it’s not DOA or bricked after a few hours like my ps4…..

      • Dylan

        Did you send yours back yet?

        • WARLORD

          yeah I just sent it back to Amazon for a refund. and got a new one from a friend how had one left he was trying to sell…

          • Dylan

            Well at least it worked out.

            I got the 30 dollar 2 year plan from SquareTrade on Amazon, as I learned the hard way from the RROD with the 360 and the disc read error in the PS2

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        actually, there is no way to know that until tomorrow when ups gets ahold of them.

    • Nick Peck

      What reviews are you looking at, all of the main sites are showing it working quick and easy. The only “voice fumbling” is people saying the wrong commands lol. If you know how to speak to electronics you will have no issues (like don’t speed talk) ect.

      Everything you want is right there, left – middle – right, no more tabbing down 5 times to find all of the different menus. Not to mention, it’s NEW, take some time to look around and learn it lol. Why do people expect instant gratification? I never had the original Kinect give me a hard time with voice commands, worked for me just fine, so I’m sure the new one will be great.

  • Joddington

    Got my Xbox One earlier today (in the UK and the place i got it from delivered early. Loving it so far, but the one big failing is lack of headset support. Because I can’t play with my TV sound up I can either play through TV headphones and hear game sound OR chat to people and not hear the game. Serious faux pas that won’t be sorted as far as I’m concerned for months.

      turtle beach and MS is working on a solution, somekind of an adapter you will have to purchase. (ok we hate buying adapter, but isn’t it what apple do with every version of their product ? lol)

      • fastharryDOTcom

        • Dylan

          • fastharryDOTcom

            I can just see all the geeks at the servers centers yelling ” space helmets on captain Video”…google that phrase….

          • Timothy Shilleto

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

  • evilfangs .

    Got my system set up, all fine :P

    Now on to play some AC4!

    If anyone wants to follower or add me as a friend I use the same name for my GT

  • GmailIsDown

    Just want to reiterate that, with the new console, you need to be extra careful to play by the rules. Microsoft can ban your account and console permanently for reasons like:
    Unlocking achievements, prestiges, in-game ranks, or unlockables you didn’t actually earn
    Repeatedly using a game glitch or vulnerability to gain an unfair competitive advantage
    Interfering with or manipulating your console network traffic
    Getting, asking for, or using redemption codes illegitimately
    Transferring licenses to your console from an account that you didn’t create
    Using a system glitch or loophole for financial gain
    Using any sort of “shared” account to avoid having to pay for games or content
    Successfully redeeming or giving away a code, then contacting Customer Support claiming the code didn’t work
    Attempting to defraud Microsoft or authorized agents
    Fraudulently transferring content licenses
    Sharing account credentials
    Asking to be added to someone’s third party subscription (such as Netflix, hulu, etc.), in order to avoid restrictions or payment

    Stay safe!!

    it’s happening.gif

  • Dylan

    Anyone else having Xbox One issues like this one or is it an isolated case?

    http://www you tube com/watch?v=lOPcMT5DHWY

    • evilfangs .

      Only put one disc in and it works fine so not sure if this is isolated or not.

      • Dylan

        I would hope so.

        Maybe the guy didn’t install the day 1 patch, and that’s what the DRM would have looked like if it didn’t have the 24 hour activation?
        I don’t know

        • evilfangs .

          Do you know if we have to register our X1 for warranty or is it automatic?

          • Dylan

            I don’t know. If it is a manufacturer warranty you shouldn’t have to since the date of creation is on the box.

            If you got a warranty from a third party, yes.

          • evilfangs .

            Just the warranty from Microsoft out of the Xbox one box.

  • Nathanzz

    I think XBL is having server issues, impacting 360. Trying to download Iron Brigade, and it’s stuck at 0%. The Gametrailers stream worked fine, though.

    • evilfangs .

      I haven’t had no issues yet with online or servers on X1. Downloaded the day one patch fine and been sign into Xbox live ever since.

      • Nathanzz

        It’s working now. Guess it was a temporary glitch.

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    heard no complaints thus far for midnight release, hope all goes well once everyone gets theirs in the mail.

    good luck to those who pre ordered the system already, and hopefully the ups guy isn’t on any type of drugs or in a rage where he throws your system.

    • WARLORD

      From what I read people are getting broken Disc Drive, and what there calling green screen of death. For me so far so good..

      • evilfangs .

        No problems for me.

        I only have three games. So I’ve only entered a disc into my disc drive 4 times.

        ( I started with AC4 then downloaded the other two games and back to AC4 )

  • watkins

    Till you guys figure a way to get dance central and rock band on this new box with all their respective dlc that I purchased imported over i’ll be sticking with my 360 till then. After that drm fiasco I don’t trust this company. Bought a ps4 and don’t regret it. This is coming from a 11 year xbox live vet.

    • HGamer

      Harmonix is working on another X1 music game “Fantasia Music Evolved”. I think there will not be a new Dance Central anytime soon.

      • watkins

        Well couldn’t they at the least port the existing dance central over. Make it a download only title for all I care. I’d buy it if I could use all my existing dlc. Microsoft is really giving me no reason to purchase this console.. And it sucks cause I want a reason to buy it.

        • Nick Peck

          Over a dance game? Really? lol…..

          • watkins

            Yeah seeing as how those are the games that get used The most by friends. I have no reason to upgrade to xbox one. 360/ps4 combo works for me.

    • xbox_gamer

      Yea I have 5 gigs of rb and gh and all the export keys

  • Robotron2084

    Larry,

    I was one of the people you helped on launch day for the 360. My system was DOA and was then lost in the system for 6 weeks. You managed to turn it around and get me a great replacement. Thank you. I think you are one of the hardest workers in this gaming business.

    This generation my funds were limited and I went with the PS4. It was scary to watch people report problem systems and see some media websites make people doubt their purchases. Now I see a few people having issues with the One and I hope everyone does not get caught up in the same frenzy of fear.

    No matter what system we buy we all enjoy gaming and that is what we have in common. Congratulations to everyone who was able to get their systems and I hope you fully enjoy them. If there are any problems I know from my history that you will be taken care of.

  • roozbeh, again

    Well, the eighth Generation has begun. May the games begin

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      you know what? to be honest i am really underwhelmed by these consoles so far. I have both now and they are great to an extent but i don’t get that feeling like I did when i first played my orignal xbox or even my super nintendo. It because these games are not that good. forza 5 is ok but it is a racing game and most are the same, i should know i have just about every race game for 360. I want that tekken game or that sonic game or even an abes oddessy or well you get the idea.
